On Your Wedding Day

 Hi guys, I'm back today with another project using one of the awesome MDF windows from

Calico Craft parts

The first time I looked at this window I thought it is perfect for Weddings or Christenings, I'm sure other uses too but this is what it said to me, lol

I didn't want to lose any of the fine detail on the window, so taking a little white Gesso onto a piece of sponge, I simply dabbed it over the front, it left this look which leaves the detail but adds a little texture to the window too,

When dry I went around the edges with a little vintage photo distress ink,

I also used these adorable MDF hearts, well it is a romantic themed card isn't it? and they perfectly with the window,

Calico craft parts make these fantastic word elements, they have the same style with different words on and one that comes plain, of course I used this set because the sentiment was again perfect,

I finished off my card with some spattered white Gesso which also gives the impression of confetti,

 Hi guys, I'm loving making albums at the moment, and when I saw on

Calico Craft Parts one of the Art Dolls they sell, it inspired me to create an Art themed album,

So what to use for the cover, well the front and back is a MDF media Board squares which can be bought with holes already cut for you, I chose the two option this time, they come with four or none options too,

I painted the mdf media board all over with some white Gesso first, this I left quite rough to acheive a wall look,

I then used distress paints here and there to create a random colourful background, leaving the outer edges with the white to make the colours pop,

I then took this fabulous MDF window and again after giving it a coat of white Gesso, I simply used the same paints randomly over the window, I love this effect,

I glued the window onto the dry cover and then added a fussy cut art themed easel from the Stamperia Art Des collection,

 I used 

some papers next to create a scene where I could use this MDF cut and saucer, again given a coat of white Gesso first then when dry the distress paints randomly used over the top, then when dry I stamped some text from my stash,

The next page is just some fussy cut papers, with a pocket for a removable piece onto which I did some art themed stamping,

Overleaf is again some fussy cutting from the fabulous paper range, where I have added a tiny MDF star,

This gave room again for the Fabulous Art Doll I mentioned earlier,

I kept him in his natural colour, popped the pieces together with some mini brads from my stash, then gave him a few flicks of paint randomly over the top, I couldn't resist making him look likes he's posing for a drawing, lol

The next page is again kept fairly flat, with fussy cut papers and a pocket effect,

The last page is again on a MDF square, painted as the front but I decorated this one with some fussy cut papers, as well as some of the MDF mini labels, these fit the paper perfectly,

I used some more tiny brads for the holes in  the ends,

Do check out the awesome mdf pieces that are so perfect for a project like this,
